Woman lucky to escape with her life


Two pedestrians were fortunate to escape with their lives in a freak car accident at the Green Bridge, Mullingar on last Wednesday morning, 1 February around 11am, when a car coming from Green Road direction went out of control near the bridge, careered straight ahead, and crashed into the strong stone wall beside the Canal bridge, but somehow stopped before plunging into the yardway 8 feet beneath, sending blocks of stone cascading down.
